Testosterone Depletion by Castration May Protect Mice from Heat-Induced Multiple Organ Damage and Lethality
The rectal temperature changes 1–4 hours post-whole body heating (WBH) for normothermic controls (NC), castrated, vehicle-treated heatstroke (CVH) mice, castrated, testosterone-treated heatstroke (CTH) mice, and sham-operated, heatstroke (SOH) mice. Data are means ± SEM (n = 6~9). * compared with NC group. ** compared with SOH group. *** compared with CVH group.
